Spring Break!

I'm in college and spring break starts after classes on Friday, March 3. I'm so looking forward to going home, the break from classes, and just to relax and get out and ride. I'll still be riding my crappy bike because I won't be getting a new one until the summer, but it's all good. Hopefully it stays nice next week when I'm home so I don't have to layer up too much. Well, you all probably don't care, but I just thought I would post anyway! Thanks all and have a good day/week/month/year/decade/life.

Have a great spring break!! The spring break at WIU QC does not start for another week. I still have to work at the university, but will have more time to ride.

There is nothing wrong with a crappy bike, I could give my friend a run for his money on a no name 10 speed versus his Schwinn French 15 speed.

Just have fun and ride. The stress relief from no homework alone will be relaxing.

Ya gotta love a spring break that starts 17 days before spring starts.

Haha, I know! It's mid semester so I could use the break now though. It's all good as long as it doesn't snow during it.

I hear that man, I'm in college too and our break starts at the same time as yours, and I plan on relaxing and riding too, the weather down here is supposed to be low-mid 60's and sunny, hopefully they got it right.

Ahhhhhh, low to mid 60's sounds super nice. It was just around 50 a couple days ago, but it's only gonna be upper 30's lower 40's for the first half. Then it's supposed to warm up later next week, but with rain. Have a good one man!

I'm one of those "Senior Citizen" students at WIU. I plan to use my Spring Break writing on research papers.

Do you happen to ride with the Saturday morning groups who depart from K-Mart?

Well, I finally got out today! It was about 50 degrees and most of the snow is pretty much melted. I just did some trail riding and got dirty because it is so wet out. It was fun though. Looking forward to riding some more. Have a great day everyone.
